Take a trip to a deeper place

The vastness of the Northwest Territories, not to mention the richness of its culture, means there's so much to experience on a visit here. To ensure you're getting the most out of your visit, book a tour or two with a local operator.

Depending on your interests, tour operators will have you riding fat bikes over the ice road, snowmobiling out to a cozy cabin where you'll wait for the Aurora to put on a show. They'll point out local plants and geologic features while you hike to a waterfall, or share traditional Indigenous stories while you're paddled around a pristine lake on the Canadian Shield.

Tours will help you experience the Northwest Territories and its people rather than just see it.
